by Devin C. Griffiths
The King of Kong by Seth Gordon
Film advantages and disadvantages
Advantages
Biased?
The Remaking of Culture
In that Corner
Book Summary
Tells the story of how far gaming has come
Covers multiple topics of gaming: music, game play, and the birth of casual gamers
Mentions how video games have affected society
Movie Summary
Tells the tale of the first "gaming rivalry"
Lays the foundation for gaming competitions of today
Shows how much gamers practice for competitions
Text advantages and disadvantages
Advantages
Covers multiple topics
Don't need to be a gamer to enjoy it
Covers more facts than opinions
Disadvantages
Doesn't go as in-depth to competitive gaming as much as movie
Entertaining
Delves more into the topic of competitive gaming
Disadvantages
More difficult to find information
Doesn't use evidence, expects watcher to have background knowledge
Book: yes, but a supported bias based upon opinions and statistics.

Movie: yes, the film showed emphasis on the two players and their devotion towards the game. It also demonstrates how one never shows to compete and instead uses a video tape showing a high score.
pg. 23
Central Ideas
Book:
Inform the
reader about
how much
gaming has
changed society
Film:
Show the first
ever major
gaming
competition
between
Steve Wiebe
and
Billy Mitchell
Closing
Which is better: book, I find that even non-gamers would enjoy the read, while the movie is more centered toward gamers.
